Sewing For My Baby Girl



I am getting so excited about the new grandbaby that is coming in June!  She is going to be such a wonderful addition to our family and a long awaited extension of  my son!  I can't wait to see her beautiful little face!

I have ordered some patterns to start  sewing for her.   There are so many patterns to choose from, but I love Kwik Sew patterns and I found four that I just had to have!  The Butterick and Mccalls patterns web site  now carries Kwik Sew patterns and if you join the BMV club you get 15% off all patterns even if they are on sale!

I found this darling baby girl outfit. It is perfect for a summer baby. I can't wait to get started on it!  It is sized from 0-3 months all the way up to 18 months and all sizes are encluded!  I think that is a great bargain!  I can just see little Harper wearing it now!  Well, guess I better pick out some fabric first, but I will have it ready and waiting on her when she does get here!  LOL

These little diaper covers are just adorable! I have been wanting to make some of these for a while now, so I can't wait to get started on them! This pattern also includes all sizes.


I chose two blanket patterns, neither really for the blanket, but more for the bear and doll that are included.

This pattern has the bear-blanket.  I just love that little blanket, I hope it turns out as cute as it is in my mental image.  Sometimes that isn't the case, so I will just try my best and see.  I have never made any kind of stuffed animal. (well I did try to make a Care Bear out of some fake fur fabric many years ago and it ended up in the garbage.  I thought I had ruined my machine forever with  all the fuzz!)  Hopefully this project will have better results!

This pattern has some really cute bibs that come with some darling appliques.  The blanket is really cute too, but that little babydoll just called Nana when I was looking at patterns.   Harper needs that babydoll! LOL

Well as you can see I have my sewing cut out for me!(no pun intended)  I am off to check out fabric!  I wish I had a fabric store around the corner that I could run off to and spend hours looking and  feeling of fabric, but those were the good old days, most of my fabric is now purchased online.  Sew off I go to find the perfect fabrics!

Happy Sewing!

Congrats on the newest soon-to-be addition Nana Glo! I have two friends who are about to birth baby boys soon. Do you have any suggestions on what to make them?

I'd like to try to quilt a small baby blanket, but has never tried quilting before. Is it a good project for a new beginner? Otherwise i was going to stick to what i know and just embroider some wall art for them.

I think the bib ideas are cool too, maybe i shall attempt that!

Hey Nani, I am so excited and glad to know my writing reflects my feelings! I think those little diaper covers are just adorable! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! :)

Hey Punky! Ahh little boys are precious. I think a quilt would be a great project. I made my first one just a few months ago. My suggestion is to start simple. A search for beginner quilts should bring up all kinds of options. I think embroidered wall art is very cool too! Have a wonderful day Punky! :)
